Excellent show!
26 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I started watching this a few days ago in Netflix. I'm in the US. I couldn't stop until I had finished season 2! It's definitely better than Orange is the New Black. It has much more depth & character. It's just more REAL, although not what prisons are like here in America. I first started watching shows about prison when Prison Break came out on Netflix, and I quickly became hooked. I know that one was entirely fiction but it was a fantastic program. Each episode kept me on the edge of my seat. While Orange is the New Black isn't bad, you're often left knowing that more happened, that there were things that were omitted either from the book or the show. With Wentworth you never get that feeling. You get to learn what these people struggle with, not just the prisoners, but also the guards and the administration. I can't wait til season 3 comes out, and I hope it gets released on Netflix!
